Abstract: Chapter 1 of Library Technology Reports (vol 49, no. 1) "Resource Sharing in Libraries: Concepts, Products, Technologies, and Trends" presents some of the conceptual approaches available to libraries in the way that they provide access to materials to their patrons beyond their local collections. Models of resource sharing discussed include sharing an integrated library system among the members of a regional consortium; implementing a resource sharing environment to connect ILS implementations to enable consortial borrowing; and providing materials through document delivery services or global interlibrary loan systems.
